In a game that features space-based graphics, players can almost ignore the fact that it's got a simple classic theme otherwise, and Stellar Spins is an excellent example of that.
The game has a vintage concept, mixed in with precious stones, but thanks to the great background showing players a view of Earth from outer space, they can almost ignore that. This is one of the 2019 releases from Booming Games, a developer that's rapidly expanding its portfolio of slots.
With Stellar Spins, players can choose a layout that works well with the classic theme, like why the game only has ten active lines inside. The game provides players with bonus icons, scatters, free spins and wilds, that is actually a fairly standard mix right now in today's modern slot games.
Stellar Spins game design
A vintage theme is not going to be the most exciting option around, but here the game has an outer space angle thrown in as well. Players get a view of Earth from space for one, whilst many of the classic icons have been transformed to fit in with the outer space concept. Planets are appearing behind the three seven icons, whilst diamonds and a card suit shaped gemstones fill the lower-value positions.
Slot features of Stellar Spins
First, on any list of features, is probably going to be the stacked wild. This icon is represented as a Golden Star that has the Wild logo in front, so spotting it should not be an issue. The Golder Star may be used to replace any other icon in the game, with the obvious exceptions being the two other feature icons. Its stacked nature helps it form regular winning combinations, but as a downside, players will find it in this form only on the third reel.
The unique icon, with a multi-layered star and a < and > drawing on top of it, is the two-Way Pay trigger. A single special symbol is enough, to get the option active, and then the icon may also be used as a replacement. It remains active for ten spins, whereas winning combinations are taken into account both when they form right to left and left to right.
Three Free Spins logos are required, to get players their free spins in this game. Eight free spins will be the outcome of that combination of icons. The Expanding Symbol is going to be chosen from the regular icons, for the duration of this feature only. If three plus expanding icons appear on three of the reels, then they will grow and take over their columns. These are additional wins that are displayed after the first prizes are shown.
Prizes and gameplay in Stellar Spins
As players bets are made for ten active lines, without any way to change that, they can select a wager within a range that varies between $0.10 and $500. This would give players a low bet of only $0.01 per line, and a top one of $50.
It might sound like a lot of money, but when players should consider that to obtain a jackpot of $250,000 will only mean x500 a player's bet stake. Several features aim to help the player get more money as they play.
Stellar Spins is a new offering from Booming Games, and although the gameplay is nothing original, it has all the vital components to ensure some entertaining wins. The visuals are pleasing enough, yet for both newer and experienced players, there is plenty on show to make some nice prize money.
